By law any products containing GMO must be labelled as bioengineered or GMO
foods so that consumers know what they are buying.

ingredients that Americans eat such as cornstarch, corn syrup, corn oil,
soybean oil, canola oil, or granulated sugar.


BillK, everything we eat is most likely genetically modified.  All the farm
products, both plant and beast, are genetically modified organisms.  If one
goes into edible plants that can be found in nature, or devours wild game,
one soon realizes why genetic modification is a really good thing.

Advertising doesn't need to make sense.  It only needs to sell products.  We
now have a system were some foods are advertised or labeled as GMO when
likely everything in that store is genetically modified.
